Major Sights on our Capitol Hill Tour:
This is the biggest and baddest library on the planet. With a gold-plated dome and Neptune, the Roman god of the sea, protecting its front, it would be hard to argue against the dramatic beauty of the Library of Congress. Formed in 1800, the LOC is the oldest federal cultural institution in the nation. If you made one bookshelf to hold all of its books, it would stretch from Seattle to San Francisco. Now that would be a real information superhighway!
